I have had a few requests to create a shared calendar for a department so that a supervisor can easily and quickly reference to see when meetings are set up with external growers that we work with. Initially I create a mail enable Public Folder Calendar, but that quickly proved to be lacking some required features. Now I am looking at creating a resource calendar like a Resource Room Calendar.

I read that you can create a shared mailbox that is a resource mailbox. http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2009/02/26/3407028.aspx
But I have not been able to get it to auto accept like i can with the other Room Mailboxes. The shell command does not seem to work the same for this mailbox.

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-MailboxCalendarSettings -Identity "GCC" -AutomatePr
ocessing AutoAccept
Set-MailboxCalendarSettings : AutoAccept can only be enabled on resource mailbo
xes.

   d) [Set-MailboxCalendarSettings], ResourceOnlyException

   Tasks.SetMailboxCalendarSettings

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this to auto accept or have you implemented something else to achieve similar results?

Have you tried:

get-mailbox | where{$_.ResourceType -eq “Room”} | Set-CalendarProcessing -AutomateProcessing AutoAccept

Open in new window

This is a not a room resource. We have resource rooms and I do not want to confuse users with additional rooms that are not actually rooms. I created this resource as a shared resource.

new-mailbox .... -shared

Try to enable the user account and then logon to the mailbox using OWA.  Once in OWA, go into Options -> Calendar -> Resource Scheduling and see if it is enabled.
